The cameras can also capture 1080p videos and super slow motion videos at 960fps with 720p resolution.

The P20 Pro is running Android 8.1 Oreo, the latest version of Google's operating system.

The Huawei P20 sports a 5.8-inch full-HD+ (1080 x 2244 pixels) RGBW FullView display, with the W standing for White, and meant to provide better sunlight visibility.

The regular P20 doesn't look to be a sloucher either, featuring a Leica dual-lens camera featuring a 12MP lens with a pixel size as high as 1.55 μm, and a 20MP monochrome lens, enhancing the HUAWEI P20's ability to capture photos in low-light settings.

Indeed, with its nearly bezel-less screen that extends to the sides of the phone - save for a familiar "notch" at the top where the front camera sits - the P20 Pro looks remarkably similar to the iPhone X. Huawei is also the only one of the top three players to consistently gain market share year-over-year since 2014, according to IDC. It also features an exclusive Leica colour temperature sensor for better colour reproduction. The Porsche Edition Mate RS got 4,000mAh battery and P20 got 3,400mAh battery.

One of those concepts that few phones have dabbled with beyond testing, this is a fingerprint sensor built into the screen, allowing you to touch it and unlocking the phone using only your friction ridges through the screen itself. Huawei has made a lot of inroads in mobile photography - the Huawei P10 getting decent scores from DxOMark and recently, the Huawei Mate 10 Pro breaking into the top 10. One being 40 MP primary camera, the secondary being 20 MP Monochrome and the third being an 8 MP telephoto lens.

The Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS is essentially an upgraded P20 Pro, as it has the same triple-camera set-up and artificial intelligence integration.

There's 128GB of built-in storage, which should be enough for apps, photos and music, but unfortunately there's no expandable memory as we've seen on other phones. Huawei P9, for example, is a great device to have the beauty of any smartphone in hands and being very powerful at the same time.

The Mate RS is IP67 certified for dust and water resistance, and Huawei also states that theirs is the first phone using microcapsule PCM, an aerospace cooling technology. Both batteries support company's SuperCharge fast charging that claims to provide 58 percent in 30 minutes.

For selfies, this phone is equipped with 24MP front camera with f/2.0 aperture, AI beautification and 3D portrait lighting. The new Huawei P20 and Huawei P20 Pro feature Leica-certified camera and the iPhone X-inspired notch display. Neither model supports wireless charging.

The Huawei P20 has been priced at Euro 649 (~ Rs. 52,200) whereas the P20 Pro will cost you Euro 899 (~ Rs. 72,300).
